When I think of movie stars, I think of larger than life, hugely successful people who live an almost fantasy existence. Sometimes I forget that they are not immune to the tragedies of life.
Yesterday, John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s 16 year old son died. When I read the news, it brought tears to my eyes. What a beautiful family…I have always enjoyed reading the happy positive stories about their lives. Somehow they have managed to avoid being the prey of seedy tabloids.
Here is the question I am putting out there this morning….Why does a family have to lose a child? I will never understand it. I have studied different religions and still can not accept why children…our most precious gift on this planet have to leave us (in the physical form). There are no explanations that can rationalize it for me.
My deepest sympathies and heartfelt prayers to the Travolta family.
